2.5 stars. Its so-so. It has limited icons for home screen shortcut folders & the icons do not stay. They revert back to the app icon, (photos on top of the gear), every time you reboot, or battery runs out, etc.. This gets to be VERY aggravating especially when you have several shortcut folders on your home screen. Please fix this.

This is the only app I've found that can be used in conjunction with Nova to display freeform folders with gestures. Unfortunately it's super out of date, has trouble displaying modern app icons and is kind of really ugly. This app really needs an update or an alternative.

This used to be a must have, I now realize that the developer gave up on the app 5 years ago, which explains the crashing problem when you try to change anything. I've moved on to Folder Organizer, which is usable but just not as great as Smart Shortcuts was prior to the crashing with the latest Android Nougat.
